I turned 29 about a week ago to very little fanfare. That doesn't mean I haven't been busy.
On the evening of January 1st, I pulled out 12 cards from my Initiatory Golden Dawn deck to forecast the upcoming year. But instead of posting it here, I wrote them down in my planner to kinda meditate on as the months goes by. The card for January's forecast [theme?] was the 9 of Cups - The Lord of Material Happiness.
Which I found confusing at first.
Did you miss Part 1? Part 2? Or Part 3?
We're almost at the end of 2017 [holy shit] but only at the halfway point of Kwanzaa! Today's Principle is Ujamaa ['Cooperative Economics'], where we are asked "To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.” This particular Principle might be amongst the most important for us as members of the African Diaspora to consider- especially in today's sociopolitical climate.
But let's deal with the spread first!
Happy Holidays everyone! I trust that you all had a wonderful time celebrating whatever holiday you hold dear with your loved ones.
Today is Boxing Day and thus, the first day of Kwanzaa! As part of my personal journey into exploring my own African heritage, I found it important over the last few years to start studying Kwanzaa for myself. created in 1966 by Dr Maulana Karenga, it's more of a cultural festival as opposed to a religious or spiritual one- so literally the only prerequisite to celebrating is having some of that sweet Melanin in your blood~ but everyone should learn about Kwanzaa anyway, so that's what these posts will be about!
Today I restarted taking note of my Tarot Daily Draw, and got both the Queen and Page of Wands. Quite fitting considering some recent developments.
